The Ozarks Small Business Incubator aims to be a community of support for entrepreneurs and business owners at all stages in their business development. Our team of professionals, mentors, successful entrepreneurs and board members surround your emerging business with skills, experience and networks to help you start and accelerate towards success. We support entrepreneurs with an idea to those who want to take an existing business to the next level.
Our clients operate social service businesses, breweries, software companies, salons, manufacturing plants, medical services, IT companies, professional services and more. Their businesses are large and small, new and old. We have helped them build strong companies through mentoring, business trainings, affordable office space and capital.
OzSBI opened its doors in January of 2012 after the renovation of the Butler Furniture Building in historic downtown West Plains. It was the ninth incubator in Missouri to open. It was developed as nonprofit entrepreneurial assistance organization serving Douglas, Howell, Oregon, Ozark, Shannon, Texas and Wright Counties.
